The author is a son of Hilton Head Islander Scottie Davis.
I'm going to keep this one short and sweet, because (1.) I have a big, ol' honey-do list to power through, (B.) you don't have time to read all my inane ramblings, and (III.) you probably wouldn't want to read them even if you had all the time in the world.
So, let's cut to the chase. Here are a few ...
THINGS I KNOW
No shortage of intriguing story lines on the area high school football schedule tonight, and if you have a little driving-around money in your pocket and play your cards right, you can take in not one, but two, good games tonight.
Out this week is the comedy, "Made of Honor." Tom (Patrick Dempsey) is a ladies man. Simple as that. The women love him, and he loves the attention. And always there to hear about the latest conquests is his best friend Hannah (Michelle Monaghan.) It's been a platonic 10-year relationship between the two who have shared everything but intimacy since they met in college. Now Hannah has met that special someone, and it's right before Tom has realized that she is the one for him. So a plan is set into motion as Tom does all he can to win Hannah back before the wedding.
Sorry to keep my legions of loyal readers waiting for my pigskin pontifications this week, but as you're probably aware, a big part of these Saturday Morning Punter posts is the "Things I Know" segment ... and it's getting harder all the time to come up with something I know about our area football teams.
Out this week is the comedy, "Baby Mama." Kate (Tina Fey) is a single, thirty-something career woman with baby on the mind. She's been in many a failed relationship and can't seem to find Mr. Right to give her the child she desperately wants. Adoption, among other options haven't panned out so she turns to surrogacy.

If their goal is to gain a high enough profile to garner an at-large invitation to the NAIA National Championship in November, the USC Beaufort men's cross country team made a good first stride ... but it's a marathon, not a sprint.
At the Gamecock Invitational on Aug. 29 in Columbia, the Sand Sharks \finished third overall and second among NCAA Division II, Division III and NAIA squads, with four individual runners finishing in the top 20 and six in the top 25.
Never has such a nondescript list of scores left me wondering, "What the heck is going on here?," but even though the Week 2 high school football schedule (which bled into Week 3) didn't produce any shocking results, it left this reporter wondering what we really know about the teams in our coverage area.
Sure, Beaufort High is better than Battery Creek, but we already knew that. And Bluffton can't hang with a Class 4-A power? Big shocker there.
Out this week is the independent drama, "Purple Violets." Probably one seen by few, it was featured at the Savannah Film and Video Festival at the end of October last year and for those interested, was the first feature film to premiere exclusively to be sold on i-Tunes.
Starring a well-known group of stars, Edward Burns, Selma Blair, Patrick Wilson and Debra Messing, it's the story of second chances and missed opportunities for a group of college friends that are reunited.
